There’s been some internet chatter recently about how Huffington Post, a blog with mostly liberal writers and a liberal slant on the news, publishes a lot of photos and slideshows of half-naked female celebs. Two years ago I was on staff at the Huffington Post and this was going on back then too. The ongoing hypocrisy of an ostensibly liberal politics site objectifying women’s bodies, sadly, is not new.

Everyone has got nipples, but not everyone can show them. Dudes, even ones with man boobs and Mormons, can pose for pics shirtless. Now, when a woman goes topless, the tits have hit the fan! As our own editor Amelia has shown, you’ve got to cover nips with Photoshopped on pasties — then and only then, is she the portrait of modesty by American standards. But does digitally removing some nipples truly desexualize a naked lady? That’s exactly what photography team Loreffrey set to find out in their series Nipple Non Grata.

While Europeans are known for spending the summer lazing about the beach topless, we Americans have more modest sunbathing practices, which involve covering up our boobs and bums. But if you’re taking vacation in France this summer, you’ll be able to test the topless waters without showing your peaks to the entire Riviera. Starting in June, Sephora France will stock 50 of its stores with Nippies, those little stickers cute shapes like stars and hearts that cover up your nipples and are normally worn under clothing that don’t allow for a bra to prevent “wardrobe malfunctions.” While Nippes are for sale in the states, Bristols 6, the company behind Nippies, is marketing their use in France as a way to avoid unintended nipple slips at the pool when wearing teeny bikinis, and on their own as an alternative to tops (yes, the adhesive is waterproof). “While topless sunbathing is de riguer in Europe, Nippies are a chic cover-up for less courageous Americans desiring a cool Euro vibe. … Undercover or exposed, Nippies are a patch of freedom you won’t need to hide,” reads a promotional email. Would you wear these sparkly stickers in place of your swimsuit top? [Bristols 6] Keep reading »
Lately I’ve noticed that a lot of stars are showing up events or are photographed with visible nipple action, either in the form of hard, erect nipples poking through shirts (Paris Hilton), or thin fabric exposing the slightest bit of areolae shape and color (Beyonce, I am talking to you). With the insane array of products on the market to prevent such displays — from, you know, bras to breast petals — I’ve been wondering why on earth these ladies are walking out of the house with their headlights on. But beyond that, what do guys think? I mean, i think it goes without saying that breasts are beloved by all straight men, but is it true that guys are really hot for hard nipples? And what do they think of nipples in general? I think you know who I asked… Keep reading »
On last week’s episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project,” crybaby assistant stylist Brad Goreski got busted for forgetting to leave Rachel a fashion kit with which to style Cameron Diaz for the Academy Awards. That kit includes nipples covers — as Brad explains: “[I]f one of our clients is wearing a chiffon dress, and it is cold outside, we’ll have pokey nipples!” God forbid a women should have protruding mammary papillae! As it turns out, if you’re looking to go bare but not go there, Bristols 6 makes the Nippies brand nipple covers that Zoe favors. The pasties style comes in a wide variety of shapes and colors: butterflies or stars, glittery or sequined, Rio hearts or Pucci patterned. The silicone style offers more coverage and is reusable and “paparazzi proof.” With the right pair, and the right ringtone, Zoe herself will tell you: “You’re shutting it down!” Keep reading »
